The recent Solar Maximum gives us a wonderful opportunity to observe the Sun in action.
Borderland Sciences has been investigating the relationship of the Sun and human behavior for many years, and we are quite confident that we can predict behaviors based on sunspot fluctuations over very short and long durations within the Solar Cycle of 11 years. Historically, research has been conducted to link the 11 year cycle of the sun to changes in human behavior and society.
The most famous research had been done by professor A.L. Tchijevsky, a Russian scientist, who presented a paper to the American Meteorological Society at Philadelphia in the late 19th century.
He prepared a study of the history of mass human movement compared to the solar cycle, beginning with the division of the Solar cycle into four parts:
He then divided up the agitation of mass human movements into five phases:
By these comparisons he constructed an "Index of Mass Human Excitability" covering each year from 500 B.C. to 1922 A.D.
He investigated the histories of 72 countries in that period, noting signs of human unrest such as wars, revolutions, riots, expeditions and migrations, plus the number of humans involved. Tchijevsky found that fully 80% of the most significant events occurred during the years of maximum sunspot activity. He maintained that the "exciting" period may be explained by an acute change in the nervous and psychic character of humanity, which takes place at sunspot maxima.
Tchijevsky’s study is the foundation of sunspot theory on human behavior, and as Harlan True Stetson, in his book Sunspots and Their Effects, stated,
acknowledge that the mechanism by which ultraviolet radiation
is absorbed was still a puzzle biologists had to solve.
The Sun is one of Earth’s primary
sources of cosmic radiation. While the Sun does
produce its own radiations, solar winds actually capture passing
cosmic dust and radiation and blow it into the earth’s atmosphere.
While it may seem frightening to some, this can actually be
considered the Primal Vibration that sets the cells
vibrating with Vital Force. This is the Prana,
that Cosmic Breath, which is meant to vitalize man,
and is the source for our evolution.
In the ‘Preliminary Remarks’ to Lakhovsky’s The Secret of Life, Professor d’Arsonval quotes Crile:
He felt that the entire energy system of living beings is controlled by radiant energy and electrical forces.
D’Arsonval points out that Lakhovsky and Crile found that living cells are electrical cells functioning as system of generators, inductance lines, and insulators.
The underlying mechanism is the oscillating circuit. An oscillating circuit is a circuit containing inductance and capacity, which when supplied energy from an external source, is set in electrical vibration and oscillates at its natural frequency. D’Arsonval explains further that a conductor is said to possess inductance if a current flowing through it causes a magnetic field to be set up round it.
The capacity of a condenser of an isolated body is a measure of the charge of the quantity of electricity it is capable of storing.
From such a circuit, energy is readily given off in the form of waves. According to Lakhovsky, the nucleus of a living cell may be compared to an electrical oscillating circuit. The nucleus consists of tubular filaments, chromosomes, mitochondria, made up of insulating material and filled with a conducting fluid containing all the mineral salts found in sea water.
These filaments are thus comparable to oscillating
circuits endowed with capacity according to a specific
We know it is the subtle magnetism of positive and negative charges that pulls certain particles across membranes in cells to produce energy.
These magnetic exchanges result in the stimulation of enzymes and the production of energy like ATP. The increase of penetrating waves during a solar storm causes an excitation in these electro-chemical reactions within the body. Tchijevsky also identified correlations between changes in solar magnetic activity with biological processes.
In light of Lakhovsky’s theory in his own words,
A plausible mechanism is provided to understanding the stimulating effects the radiation from the Sun has on human behavior. In an abstract entitled “Automated Experiment on Macro-fluctuation Monitoring” Bruns A.V. and Visolimsky B.M. also find a close relationship with the solar activity and bio-chemical reactions.
In another historical study Suitbert Ertel writes in his article “Synchronous Bursts of Activity in Independent Cultures; Evidence for Extraterrestrial Connections” that evidence has been reported suggesting a link between historical oscillations of scientific creativity and solar cyclic variation. Eddy’s discovery of abnormal secular periods of solar inactivity (Maunders minimum type) offered the opportunity to put the present hypothesis to a crucial test.
Using time series of flourish years of creators in science, literature, and painting (A.D. 600-1800) It was found as expected:
The evidence seems to
show that during the maxima of sunspot activity human behavior
In his Preliminary remarks to Lakhovsky’s The Secret of Life the Professor d’Arsonval gives several examples of research done in the last hundred years that shows the most malefic effects from solar activity come at the sunspot minima. He notes from the British Medical Journal, March 7th & 14th of 1936 that both Colonel C.A. Gill and Dr. Conyers Morrel found increases in pandemics of deadly diseases during the period of minimal sunspot activity.
In Gill’s study he showed that every pandemic of malaria since sunspot records were taken had occurred when sunspot numbers were lowest. Similar trends were observed in East Africa and elsewhere with Yellow fever epidemics since 1800 occur during the sunspot minima.
Dr. Conyers Morrel also finds that,
We also see an increase in disease in Solco W. Tromp’s study.
Without the stimulation from the Sun human health seems to diminish. The immune system seems to grow unresponsive during the solar lull and diseases can more easily gain a foothold in the body. Not only human health but Life itself seems hampered by the lack of solar activity.
William Hershel wrote in 1801,
The depressed state of metabolism and lack of food in agricultural centers may have seemed very inviting to the Mongols.
Goncharov, in an abstract on the “Asian Nomadic Invasions and Solar Cycles”, said,
